good night. fair, not right. not here. >> dana: hello, everyone. i'm dana perino with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, eric bolling, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> dana: benghazi hearings finally got underway on capitol hill today. the purpose to find out what the white house and others in the administration knew about the attack, why the video was blamed and why repeated requests for more security were seemingly ignored. former c.i.a. director david petraeus will testify tomorrow in two closed door hearings. it was announced today that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify in mid-december. chairman of the house foreign affairs committee spoke today about the frustration over the conflicting information. >> every time we have another
11:01 pm
classified briefing and every time we try to pry deeper we get conflicting reports about what was taking place. and what messages were being sent to washington. what did the administration know, and we have got to do something to make sure that our personnel in harm's way including diplomat, they are on the front line, that the diplomatic posts are protected and that they have the security that they need. >> dana: all right. so a lot to get to tonight, because there are more reports tonight from the "wall street journal" that updated the story earlier, eric, that said general david petraeus in the final days before he was leaving that there is a lot of conflict and it was over the benghazi issue because he wanted to put out a c.i.a. timeline to put the c.i.a. in a favorable light. his boss, jim clapper, director of national intelligence, there was conflict there. we know what happened which is revealed that david petraeus, he admitted he had an exmarital affair. he resigned from the c.i.a.
11:02 pm
but he is going to testify anyway. that is new. >> eric: he is going to testify. but catherine herridge reported a short time ago that clapper and michael morrell the acting c.i.a. director would about tell them, wouldn't tell anyone who instructed susan rice to go with the video story. the way it went down, she was told to go out there to talk to five talk shows and there were talking points. who prepared the talking points and told them to go with the talking point? neither one of them would come clean on. >> dana: they have plausible deniability. they said we don't know who did it. that feels convenient. >> bob: president said the white house asked her to do it. >> dana: who prepared the information, that is the question. >> bob: the question is who
11:03 pm
gave her the talking points? and we know talking points she was given to her mind, given the same intelligence committees of the hill, >> dana: they could not talk about the role of ansar al-sharia when there is strong evidence of the involvement. if the chairwoman was getting advice about the question to ask, the question you have been asking since september 11. >> greg: incredible. do you think hillary got herself far enough away from this thing? she is in australia. feed her wine and we might get more facts from her slightly tipsy than anybody else. my fear about this thing is that after confusing event like this, if you don't get the true facts, you almost never do. we are still talking about the
11:04 pm
j.f.k. assassination because of the warren commission. if we don't get clarity, we will get the history and truth from a half-baked hbo tv show. in which susan rice is the hero played by halle berry and it will make no sense. >> dana: what must it be like to be david petraeus tonight know leg has gone from a major hero in history. it doesn't take away from his accomplishments what he achieved and what happened with the extra marital affair. he goes to congress as a civilian, first time he has done that. he will tell them what he knows and i'm sure he will be truthful about it. what is that going to be like? it's closed door so we won't see him. >> andrea: he's a very how longest man -- honest man and so some are speculating that white house didn't want him to testify because he is a good man. the question remains, besides who pushed the video, why did
11:05 pm
general petraeus change his story? reports from the c.i.a. officer on the ground after the attack said it was a terrorist attack. when general petraeus briefed congress, he also mentioned the video story. why were they saying it was terrorism? why he didn't say that? the man who testified in his place today got up on capitol hill and said i wasn't at the briefing, i don't know. i don't know who prepared the talking points. >> eric: even more disturbing that general petraeus on the very same day said he pushed the video. he said it was the video. first, can we make a point. we made it yesterday. again, the u.s. military is the most respected on the planet. it's one of the most well run organizations of any type on the planet. we're not -- talking about a few, what could be perceived as bad apples. allow me. petraeus said it was the video and they look at the video as a spontaneous, the benghazi
11:06 pm
killings as a spontaneous reaction. the department of defense leon panetta was saying it was terrorism. the very same -- >> bob: petraeus never said -- he didn't change his story. he never said it wasn't a terrorist attack. he did not. >> eric: said it was reaction to the movie. >> dana: this would be a fun experiment. if you found somebody living under a rock or on mars or listening to the news and said i want you to sift through the stories, see the conclusion. it's what is our government doing to protect the diplomatic personnel. we have a responseability to
11:07 pm
do that. >> greg: a journalist would be good at doing that. this is a blown opportunity for journalist to become the next -- >> bob: four days after it took place. >> dana: they are the ones who said -- what they should have done and they didn't is they created the problem. not us. >> bob: talk about the conflicting information. it says in here on the briefing, there was strong ties to al-qaeda. not been one shred of evidence. >> dana: there is. >> bob: no, by the name al-qaeda. >> eric: president obama said i said it was terrorism on september 19. he said it was terrorism. >> bob: what is the point? i said it was terrorism on the 11th. >> eric: the state department --
11:08 pm
[over talk ] >> andrea: he did say it was terrorism why would cbs steve croft ask him why he didn't say it was terrorism on the first day. why tell the ladies of "the view" it's too soon to tell and univision it's not. jay carney said we never said it was terrorism. they did not say it was terrorism. yesterday at the press conference the president stood at the podium and said now that the eselection over we can get some answers. >> bob: they were prejudging it before the election to make political he hay out of it. >> dana: senator dianne feinstein of california, chairwoman of the intelligence committee wants to know why they weren't informed in a closed door session.
11:09 pm
about the investigation of f.b.i. in petraeus' personal life. >> greg: dianne feinstein, a right wing republican, right, bob? no no, no. she is a democrat. let me finish my point where you interrupted me when i said where the journalists. where are the journalbe lists? why isn't there a woodward or 2009 out of this? this is a big story. >> bob: it took them two years to get their facts out. you're asking this to be done -- >> dana: then the administration should have said we'll get the information as it comes along. the quote from the press secretary there is nothing to see here, guys. please stop asking the pesky questions. >> eric: do you remember what is happening as this happened? week before september 11 we reported that president obama
11:10 pm
did not show up to intel meetings. he wasn't attending the intel briefings. this happens the next day. four americans dead the next day. the reason we are getting conflicting stories now they have to hide that he did something -- >> bob: wherever the president of the united states goes, eric, wherever he goes or he is he gets the intelligence briefings. you don't have to be in the white house to get an intelligence briefing. every day the president where he is gets -- >> eric: all i'm saying, daa can speak to this, if you are in the room -- wherever, the oval office, if it's in oval office isn't there likely more information brought out? >> dana: it gives you a chance to ask questions. but every president has its own style. >> andrea: a lot of lefties are saying this is a private matter, the affair. they're saying don't pay attention to, which isn't a good thing. if someone landed from space to look at all of this, they
11:11 pm
are looking at the american military, one of the highest regarded organizations in the united states. they look at two decorated generals with two anthony weiners, and it's really sad. no one is going this really embarrassing for president obama. instead this is embarrassing for the military. >> bob: i assume in iraq they got phony information about weapons of mass destruction. >> andrea: we don't have enough time -- >> bob: no, they don't have enough time. not enough time before they went to war. >> dana: water finds a way. there were conflicting information on benghazi and we talked about that. greg is going to explain. next. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] this is steve.
